Minty Fresh

There's no denying it.  Mint is the jam right now.  It's kind of a bittersweet moment for me as I've spend most of my life hating mint's cousin, the ever puke inducing sea-foam green.

It goes back to when I was in 6th grade.  I was visiting my dad for the weekend and when I came home, my mom had redecorated my room.  But ya'll, it was like something out of a fluffy nightmare.  I'm talking lacy pillows, curtains, poofy bed linens...the works...all in peach and sea-foam green.  (I die.)

Somehow, peach made it out relatively unscathed, as I still very much like that shade.  However, sea-foam green was not so lucky.  As I said, I've spend a significant amount of time loathing that color.  Then here comes mint....

And I like it.  Now my boyfriend (who I assume is like most of your boyfriends/husbands out there) thinks that there are only about, oh, eight colors total.  He thinks mint is sea-foam green.  {For the record, it is SO not.}

So...basically, I get teased a lot for liking the color. 

Ugh, men. 

I just wanted to share with you today a few of my favorite minty loves.  Maybe, just maybe, if you have some favorites, will you share with me too?  Leave your minty goodness in the comments below.
